Crafty Boots Guest Designer Things With Wings

I am delighted to be a Guest Designer for Crafty Boots today. Their challenge is ‘Things With Wings’.

Crafty Boots Guest

Guest DT Badge

I made my background by embossing a Crafts Too feather folder and then swiping gently over with a blending brush with some Brilliance inks from the blue/green trio. I decided to have a play with my lovely new Kimono dies from Crafters Companion. I stuck a double sided adhesive sheet onto some paper (card would be too difficult to cut through!), and diecut the peacock, small bird and swallow, plus the flowers from the blossom branch. Then I peeled back the remaining sticky side and rubbed on some transfer foil.

The bird cage and branch were just left plain as was my lovely new Bo Bunny Lattice Frame and Lattice Centre die cuts.

I do hope you will pop on over to Crafty Boots and see what the rest of the Guests and the team have created and join in the fun.
